San Diego, CA Priest Workshop!!

Back to California! And I am so excited! I have heard for so many years how beautiful San Diego is, and they were all correct! I could not believe how the water was just part of life. I live about 75 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, but it does not look like the picture … Continued

Galveston-Houston, TX, Parishioner Workshop

Can you see my joy! I am finally giving a workshop on promoting vocations in my own Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, with some of my favorite people, including Serrans, priests and seminarians. The Serrans in the audience were the first to say, “Go, Rhonda, Go!” “Keep Writing that book!”. They helped me find funding for the … Continued

San Angelo, TX, Priest Workshop

I was surprised not by the oil wells and dry, flat land of West Texas, but by so many international priests in the diocese of San Angelo, Texas, which encompasses 37,433 square miles and is home to almost 85,000 Catholics. These mostly missionary priests come from Africa, India, and many other far away countries. They left … Continued

Stockton, CA Priest/Diaconate Workshop!

First workshop in California! Fr. Cesar, who was not even the official Vocation Director for this diocese, has been trying to work out my coming to Stockton for 2 YEARS! It seemed like one thing after another would keep this from happening. Their previous bishop had a serious injury, so we were rightfully delayed. Then, … Continued

Beaumont, TX Parishioner Workshop

First workshop of 2019 was only a few hours from Houston in Beaumont, Texas! I knew this would be a great workshop because Bishop Guillory was so enthusiastic after the priest workshop a few months prior that he called me to thank me for Vocation Ministry. That had never happened before. He also cancelled a … Continued

Davenport, IA Priests and Deacons Workshop

Belleville Parishoner Workshop

Special story! 3 years ago, I gave my first talk to Priests for the diocese of Belleville, Illinois! They were Diocese #1 out of now 36! Fr. Nicolas Junker, the Vocation Director, took a chance on me, speaking to his priests. I remember shaking in my boots as their bishop was there! I had only … Continued

Manchester, NH Priests/Deacons

Today, I did something new, and the Holy Spirit showed up in a BIG way! I was given the opportunity to speak about Vocation Ministry with all the permanent deacons of the Diocese of Manchester, New Hampshire and their wives! Only problem was that the books and resource packets did not arrive for the 80 … Continued

San Angelo, TX, Parishioner Workshop

There is a first time for everything! 100% of attendees of the Hundredfold Workshop in San Angelo said they are Highly Likely to start/continue a Vocation Ministry at their parish!! Praise Him!! I was shocked by the 75+ in attendance, again this is a tiny diocese of 80, 000 Catholics. I met this brand-new Vocation … Continued

Youngstown, OH, Parishioner Workshop

My trip to Youngstown started in Pittsburgh as I flew into their airport! My friend Fr. Michael Ackerman met me at the airport and took me to lunch and on a VERY old cable car to get an incredible view of the city! Then, we decide to meet the Vocation Director for Youngstown at Sts. … Continued
